Driver info :JASON WHEELER 


Jason (The Viking) Wheeler – Age 29.   


Born and Bred is Sunny Perranporth on the North Cornish Coast.  Jason has been a member of Perranporth Surf Life Saving Club from a young age.  If there is big surf, Jason will be in it, usually on an Inshore Rescue Boat which he enjoys trying to barrel.


Called the ‘Viking’ on the Cornwall Flood Rescue Team due to his height, his lack of fear in big surf and his desire to conquer the elements.  He is the Flood Rescue Boat Helm and has raced IRB’s from the age of 17.


Jason has a beautiful baby daughter Penelope.  He met his girlfriend Ellie, after rescuing her in an IRB.  Who said Cornish romance is dead?


He is a builder by trade and with his love for fast boats, surf and drinking tea.  Therefore, the Ahmad Tea - ThunderCat partnership has made Jason Christmas’s come all at once…
